HOW STEM CELLS ARE SHAPING OUR DRUG DISCOVERY TECHNIQUES?

Taimoor Hassan

Abstract


Stem cell biology is a fast-developing field of research that has made significant contributions to a wide range of scientific specialties, from developmental biology to regenerative medicine. One of the most promising implications of stem cell biology in recent years has been drug development. Stem cells are rapidly being employed in novel ways to enhance the drug development processes with applications ranging from academia to biotech start-ups to big pharmaceutical businesses.

Keywords
